Netview V5.1.2 / AIX 4.3.1
Coming back from holidays I found some new Objects in Netview which were not
discovered correctly because no snmp communities were defined in Netview, so I
decided to delete them and let them be discovered again.
Problem: after deleting an object (mainframe) from the map (only the
default-map exists, no client maps) the object remains in the object database.
All daemons are running obviously normal.
Verified with ovtopodump and ovmapdump: no trace of the deleted Object
ovobjprint shows the object as still there.
ovmapcount shows Exists count current = 0 correct = 0, Managed count current
= 0, correct = 0.
I tried almost all options of ovtopofix, ovmapcount, ovwdbdmap, no result.
Tried all options with smitty nv6000 to resolve database inconsistencies and
doing database compression, no result.
I can add the object again with Edit -> Add -> Object, getting the warning that
it already exists and only a new symbol will be created. Deleting it again has
the same result as before, it remains in ovwdb.
ovtopofix -r is of no help, as the objects are only in the object database and
not in topology db.
The log files found in /usr/OV/log show no errors.
There is a lot of free disk space.
Only some hint's in nettl.log (see attached logfile), beginning after ovstop
nvsecd and with the starting of /etc/netnmrc showing that there must be a
problem with ovwdb. One of the messages is "Cache update failure in
ovwDbSetFieldValue". We have about 8.000 objects in the db, according to
mapcount. ovwdb cache size was set to 10.000 using smit.
Any ideas bevore I delete the databases and start all over??
